I am on a toffee hunt again (as in 2009 and 2010). As a toffee lover and someone who likes to make it, give it, and get it as a gift during the holidays, I am looking for the very, very best toffees in the country to test and publish here at The Kitchn in December.
Got great toffee? We're looking for this year's winner — a shop that makes artisan-quality, incredibly yummy holiday toffee. Or, if you have a perfect recipe for toffee, we'd love that too! Do you have a tip for us? Send it in and get on the site so we can shine a light on you. All info below.
Submissions received so far:
• Elan Toffee
• Simmering Sugar Gourmet Toffee
• Tungsten Toffee
• Vermont Krunch Toffee Co.
• Toffee Talk
• Darden & Wells Toffee Co.
Over the next two weeks we're collecting samples from shops all over the country that would like to be included. Are you a shop or want to tip us off to one? All you need to do is send a toffee sample to us with a note.
By November 30th:
Maxwell's Toffee Test 2012
270 Lafayette Street, #1204
New York, NY 10012
We'll be testing all samples in the first week of December and then posting our reviews with a photograph of each. Only one will be the 2012 winner.
If you just want to talk about it or kibitz on the side, jump into the comments below.
